Conference paper


Definitions and concepts with regards to the stresses and strains in HTS tapes under deformation are discussed in this paper and criterions for use by the industry are presented. The stress/strain situation in a HTS tape with BSCCO cores in a metallic matrix is discussed and experimental results are presented. Curves of the limiting values for bending, tension and twisting are shown.
